With the community still mourning the death of a Cooperative Middle School student by suicide last month, former New Hampshire Supreme Court Chief Justice John Broderick delivered a message of creating a safe environment for students and adults to talk openly about their mental health.
Broderick spoke to members of the SAU 16 community in a packed Town Hall Tuesday night, talking about his son, John Christian Broderick’s, struggle with mental illness. Before he was diagnosed with depression, Broderick said he had put his son out on his own after he thought he developed a serious drinking problem after he graduated from college.
